Adobe Photoshop doesn't allow you to create a Icon files i.e *.ico files(Also it doesn't open .ico files).  So save your work file as a jpeg or png(If you have transparent pixels) file and use another editor to save it as .ico . You can use IcoFX ( ) its lite weight icon editor. :)

If you are trying to edit a folders icon it is very simple. Right click on the folder, go to properties, click in the "Customize" tab and under folder icons you can change it to any image on your computer. Just navigate to the image.
This works for older versions of Windows however it does not work on Windows 10.

How could we ever get a distorted image of celebrities without it?
